Favorite artist: This is a hard question to answer as it changes. At the moment I am in a This Will Destroy You and If These Trees Could Talk phase. Also always loved Jimmy Eat World, Explosions in the Sky, Radiohead….. I’ll stop now.

Best label in the world: My taste is so all over the place that it is impossible for me to name a single one.

Best concert ever: I keep coming back to the show Sigur Ros played at Lowlands Festival in The Netherlands in 2008. It captivated me, and I can’t remember ever being that much in awe of a band.
